A Click Away from Hours

Over the past few days, I’ve been unfocused. While trying to find a topic to write about, I found myself clicking from one site to another until I realized I was reading about some celebrity story that happened a year ago. And I don’t even follow celebrity gossip! But I can’t help it when I find fun websites; I can spend hours playing around on them. Typing and uploading pictures to come up with something new.

My husband and I have been doing some projects around the house, I’ve been working on the poetry anthology, and we’re taking advantage of his vacation. Of course, I didn’t prepare much this week either. Here’s what I did do. I went to my old blog, Skipping Stone Memory, and read my very first blog post on August 16, 2008. When I started my blog, I didn’t have much focus. I introduced myself as an aspiring writer, talked about a writing forum I no longer belong to, and …
